Agency Issued Reports

Evaluation agencies will complete your evaluation in one of two ways:

  1. Degree-only verification: Verifies the type of degree earned and whether or not the non-U.S. institution degree is equivalent to one earned at an accredited U.S. institution.
  2. Course-by-course evaluation: Verifies whether or not the non-U.S. institution is equivalent to an accredited U.S. institution and includes a separate report that provides U.S. semester credit, grade equivalent, and level equivalent (graduate or undergraduate) for each course. This report is used for transfer credit evaluations and 3-year non-U.S. bachelor degrees.
